Access Innovations works with AIP on semantic enrichment

Share this on social media:

Access Innovations is working with the American Institute of Physics (AIP) to semantically enrich AIP’s online full-text collection comprising more than 800,000 scholarly articles published in its academic journals since the 1930s.

The enriched database is said to allow users to search the extensive electronic collection of published articles with greater specificity and discoverability across physics.

The database is driven by AIP’s thesaurus created by Access Innovations. This thesaurus allows researchers to browse scientific articles spanning eight decades using both concept and keyword searches, with the search interface  pointing to related articles based on cross-referenced research areas.

Access Innovations will also be indexing and providing metadata tags using terms from the AIP Thesaurus as new content is added.

The semantic enrichment is expected to be completed by the end of August 2012.  AIP plans to introduce the new database in conjunction with the launch of its new platform in Autumn 2012.
